176,160 graduates benefit from N-power project

176,160 Nigeria graduates have so far benefited from the Federal Government N-Power programme of its Social Investment Programmes.

This was made known in excerpts of a book entitled: ‘‘Making Steady, Sustainable Progress for Nigeria’s Peace and Prosperity: A Mid-Term Report Card on the Buhari Administration’’.

The book is authored by the Presidential Media Team, to be presented by APC National leader Bola Tinubu and reviewed by Prince Tony Momoh on Nov. 16.

According to the book, the N-Power programme, which has reached 200,000 graduate beneficiaries from all 36 states including the FCT, has deployed 176,160 beneficiaries.

It stated that out of the 25,840 selected applicants left, 11, 884 beneficiaries were disqualified (after physical verification) or had incomplete records.

It further added that the remaining 13,956 beneficiaries were absent from physical verification.

It noted that 46 per cent of the total 200,000 beneficiaries selected were female to ensure gender balance while 1, 126 applicants with disabilities emerged successful.

It also added that a centralised Project Management Unit was currently being set up to carry out monitoring and evaluation of the programme across the six geopolitical zones.

“In addition to this, an MoU has been reached with the National Orientation Agency to also carry out monitoring and evaluation in all 36 states including the FCT.”

  • I’m npw volunteer. I’m enjoying it now but l don’t know what’s the problem all about when l try to open my npw profile. Since last two weeks our devices were distributed among in our state territory, Maiduguri. Complaints were stated by colleagues why their npw profile is opening. Please, l’m requesting urgently to know what is the matter. I’m very glad if request is considered. Thank you.

  • The NPOWER programme is a huge and commendable success as far issues of national youth empowerment is concerned. I’m one of the beneficiary and I remained ever grateful while pleading that government should hence start putting modalities in place on how to place the beneficiaries when the programme will eventually come to an end. Either providing them with soft start up loans or permanent them could be better to avoid the problem of unemployment spirals.
    Thanks to the APC Government!
    Thanks to President Buhari!!
